3rd tour with Ally, Isle of Skye. He met us at the hotel Sligachan, and drove all over the island, where Ally was born & had spent time with grandparents on their farm. Loved Neist Point, westernmost tip of Skye with the Kilt Rock waterfall overlook. The drive to the little town of Portree, with its painted houses, was lovely. On the way, at Uig, old follies (small stone lookout forts) were visible, somewhat ruined but still standing strong. Hated to part with Ally—he knows how to welcome visitors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi James, By now, day 3, it just felt like I was travelling with pals. I'm delighted that you enjoyed Skye, and your time spent in Gods Country. :) Take care to you all, Cheers, Ally

Our tour with Ally was the highlight of our time on Skye. Besides seeing areas of geologic interest, historic sites, castles and awe-inspiring scenery, our conversations were interesting and enlightening on a wide variety of topics. He also gave my husband tips on driving on the narrow roads of Skye and showed us the road to the restaurant where we were having lunch the next day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Martha, I'm delighted to read that you both enjoyed your day with myself, and that you and Marty had a magic couple of days touring yourselves. Take care. Ally

We had a most amazing tour of the Isle of Skye with Ally B. He is very knowledgeable about local history as well as Scottish history in general along with flora, fauna and whatever there is to discuss. He has a wonderful sense of humor and was a pure delight to be with. The weather wasn't very good, but we still had an amazing time. I've never enjoyed a locally guided tour so much in my life. I will remember Ally and this tour for the rest of my days. Be sure to book any tour in Scotland with Ally.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hiya Linda, Thank you so much for taking the time to review our day together touring Skye. I had a fantastic time with you all, and I too will not forget our day. Take care, Ally

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our tour with Ally. My mom and I spent two weeks in Scotland and Ireland and this was by far our favorite experience. Ally's vibrant personality, vast knowledge of Skye and its history, and humor made our excursion a memorable one. When I return to Scotland (hopefully soon), I will be booking another tour with Ally!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jordan, How are you doing? Thank you so much for writing a fantastic review of our day together, I'm delighted that you both has such a magic time. Whenever you are back, just send me a wee e-mail and we'll organise another tour for you. Many thanks, Ally
